Trucker Receives Nearly 22 Years for Tractor-Trailer, Cargo Thefts.
A Kansas City, Missouri truck driver was sentenced in federal court on Monday for his role in a 14-year-long conspiracy to steal more than $1 million worth of trucks and trailers and their cargo. Kenneth Ray Borders received 21 years and 10 months in federal prison without parole. The court also ordered Borders to pay nearly than $1.3 million in restitution to 27 victims. Borders’ sentence takes into account his previous criminal history of theft of a truck, trailer and cargo, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Western District of Missouri. He also has numerous instances of driving without a license or with a suspended license and was under a criminal sentence for driving while revoked during the conspiracy.
